We’ve already told you about the collapsing poll numbers for first-term Republican governors across the country.

Now, thanks to the team at Bill Schneider’s Inside Politics Newsletter, we’ve got a snapshot of the epic polling fail in a convenient visual form.From Florida to Ohio, Wisconsin to Arizona, the honeymoon has ended very quickly and very badly for the Republicans who rode into their respective state capitols on the tea party electoral tide last November.

Democrats say the tanking numbers can help them win in 2012. They also say the polls reflect a voter dissatisfaction with the cut-heavy, revenue-phobic agenda that has characterized many of the Republicans in office across the country and in Washington.
